Asplenium Nidus Bird Nest is an elaborate decor plant with curly fronds covered entirely in bright green colour. Want a dramatic tone to your interior; then the Bird Nest Fern comes through with its shiny reflective leaves and its sizeable lengthy foliage. The plant is of south-east Asian origin and belongs to the famous Aspleniaceae family. The leaves can be compared to banana leaves but crumply and fascinating. They grow to a wondrous length of 150 centimetres and transfuses an intense look when hanged with colourful twine.
The fern is a generally happy and friendly houseplant, and they are loved for being leafy and long-lasting. They are also known to be excellent air-purifying plants and helps against sick building syndrome. If you are not so much of green thumb, then fern is least concerned. They have dual organs which make them capable of self-reproduction. When the fern blooms, it gives off an attractive yellow and purple colour.
